My Hopes, MLK’s Words

In memory of Newtown and Aurora, of Tyler Clementi and of Trayvon Martin and the many others who have fallen victim to hate, cruelty, intolerance and “man’s inhumanity to man”.

“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.” —
Martin Luther King, Jr.

“History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.” —
Martin Luther King, Jr.

“The chain reaction of evil – hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars – must be broken, or else we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

“At the center of non-violence stands the principle of love.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.
